PARK CITY, UT (Nexstar) year marks exactly 20 years since snowboarding became an official Olympic sport. Three of those medals a gold and two bronze belong to three time Olympian Kelly Clark who just qualified for her fourth Winter Games.

“Sure I feel a little bit of pressure going back as the gold medalist, but I also feel like there not too much pressure because been there done that,” said Anderson.

On the flip side, Nate Holland still has unfinished business after walking away empty handed at three Olympic games.

“X Games, world championships, you name it,

world cups I got stacks of medals, this is my white whale,” said Holland.

Both he and Clark won their test events in PyeongChang back in February.

“This specific pipe is one of the biggest, fastest, longest, steepest half pipes I ridden,” said Clark.

That means Olympic fans are guaranteed quite a show.

When it comes to the full Winter Olympics team all Team U S A athletes will be officially announced by the end of this week.

mens ugg trainers Snowboarder wins Alpine gold

ugg boots deals Snowboarder wins Alpine gold

JEONGSEON, South Korea (AP) This made no sense to Ester Ledecka. Just simply couldn’t be. Could. Not. Be.

Which is why the part time ski racer, part time snowboarder from the Czech Republic stood so still, absolutely motionless and expressionless, for several moments after crossing the finish line in the Olympic super G and seeing the numbers on a video board that appeared to show she was fast enough to be the gold medalist. Not merely any gold medalist, but one of the most unconventional and out of nowhere gold medalists in Alpine history.

That never happened. This was no mistake. This was real. Her posted time of 1 minute, 21.11 seconds was, indeed, accurate. It was, indeed, 0.01 seconds yes, one one hundredth of a second better than Austria’s Anna Veith, the defending Olympic champion and, as the leader until the moment when the relatively unknown and low ranked Ledecka took her turn as the 26th woman down the slope, the presumed repeat Olympic champion.

Instead, it was Ledecka who collected the prized medal. This is someone who has participated in only 19 World Cup skiing races in her entire career Mikaela Shiffrin, in contrast, has been in 23 this season alone and only once finished as high as seventh. Someone who is a far more accomplished snowboarder, owning a world championship in the parallel giant slalom, an event she plans to enter at the Pyeongchang Games next week, an unprecedented achievement.

“She’s not a medal favorite. at the Sochi Olympics in snowboarding and now is Ledecka’s coach for that sport. “She stayed in her heart and she stayed in her own head and she skied like she can ski and it was beautiful to watch.”

Everything about this was remarkable. Or maybe that doesn’t even come close to capturing it. So pick another word. Extraordinary. Astonishing. Unbelievable. It was all of those things, and more, to Ledecka herself. and other past medalists such as Lara Gut of Switzerland and Federica Brignone of Italy. To everyone.

“Definitely shocking,” said Vonn, who tied for sixth.

“Just wow,
mens ugg trainers Snowboarder wins Alpine gold
” said Switzerland’s Michelle Gisin, a 2017 silver medalist at the world championships who was ninth Saturday.

That pretty much described the day at the Jeongseon Alpine Center, which began with a one hour delay because of blustery winds that calmed but still played a factor during the race, serving as tailwinds for some skiers but acting as a headwind to others.

When things finally began under a clear as can be blue sky, Vonn went first. The bronze medalist in super G and gold medalist in downhill at the 2010 Vancouver Games but sidelined for the 2014 Olympics was fast in stretches. However, she lost a chunk of time both before the midpoint and again on the last key part of the course, a jump turn combination that she flubbed and was sure cost her a medal.

“That’s why it’s so difficult to win at the Olympics,” Vonn said. “Because literally anything can happen.”

First Gut, the 2016 overall World Cup champ and a downhill bronze medalist at Sochi, temporarily moved into first place. Then Weirather, the super G silver medalist at last year’s world championships, moved in front by 0.01 seconds. Then it was Veith who took over first place, by 0.10 seconds. And that’s how things stood for the next 10 skiers. It is generally considered unlikely although not impossible, of course for anyone outside of the first 20 starters to emerge as the winner.

Veith was sure she’d clinched a gold. Weirather figured the silver was hers. Gut couldn’t wait to get that bronze around her neck.

“They were a little bit in shock,” Ledecka said. “They were staring at me a little bit.”

Now comes a decision for Ledecka. The Alpine downhill is Wednesday and requires serious training runs down the mountain beforehand. Qualifying for her snowboard event is Thursday.

“I’m sure that my ski coach will be a little bit pushy on downhill,” Ledecka said. “But my snowboard coach wants me on snowboard.”

Her work in the two sports can help her performance in each.

The speed from skiing translates to snowboarding. And the balance required in snowboarding is a boost for ski racing. Reiter pointed out, for example, that on the same final jump that gave Vonn trouble Saturday, Ledecka’s weight shifted too far backward, but she managed to recover.

“It was kind of scary there for a moment. She was able to save it,” he said. “And that’s because of her heart and because of her ability with a snowboard.”

Ledecka proved to be pretty adept at her other sport, too.

Unlikely as it might have seemed, she forever will be able to call herself an Olympic Alpine champion.

“The fact that she’s able to beat all of us and be a snowboarder is pretty darn impressive,” Vonn said. “At the Olympics, a lot of weird stuff happens.”

kensington uggs snow squalls hit the roads as winter returns

Winter wrath returned with a vengeance. border introduced an abrupt return to wintry weather Wednesday morning a startling contrast of conditions that, less than 24 hours earlier, had Calgarians basking in near double digit temperatures.

Strong winds and heavy snow swept through Calgary early Wednesday, a system that intensified as it blew south of the city and delivered a wintry punch to highways in and around the city.

Icy roads and blowing snow prompted Alberta Transportation to close a 42 kilometre stretch of the highway from Strathmore to Gleichen shortly after.

Conditions east of Gleichen were little better, with blowing snow making travel along the Trans Canada Highway extremely dangerous.

The road was reopened later Wednesday afternoon.

Crews were also kept busy west of the city,

with a jack knifed semi truck on Highway 1 west of Banff causing delays. There were multiple reports of cars spinning into the ditch on Highway 1 near Dead Man Flats and at least one car on its roof at Lac Des Arcs near Exshaw.

South of the city, snow squall warnings were issued from Bragg Creek and Tsuut south to High River, warning of localized strong winds and blinding snow.

That was later upgraded to a snowfall warning, joining communities along the Eastern Slopes forecast to receive up to 15 centimetres of snow overnight.

The Municipal District of Willow Creek issued a winter storm advisory, advising against unnecessary travel due to deteriorating conditions.

office sale ugg boots Snow days can’t cool curlers

Given just how many top end competitions have recently taken place on the ice, it seems like a bit of a surprise to think that the 2017 18 curling season is truthfully only slightly more than 50 per cent completed.

But take a moment to look at simply the playdowns held this past week and in the week ahead, and it clear that there are still several divisions that will be either crowning champions throughout the month of March, or doling out the berths for nationals being staged this month and next.

The folks involved with the high school curling may have seen their schedules squeezed thanks to back to back snow days last week, but that did not stop the Lockerby Vikings girls (Sydnie Stinson, Jessica Leonard, Abby Deschene, Elizabeth Huska) from claiming a second straight NOSSA banner.

Directly on the heels of knocking off the Marymount Regals 7 2 in the city final on Monday, the Vikes were on the road to Blind River, kicking off the Northern Ontario championships the very next morning.

didn really know what to expect as much with NOSSA, because a lot of the girls from last year that we knew had graduated, conceded Leonard, who serves as vice and also joins Stinson and Deschene on a U18 rink that will compete next week at provincials in New Liskeard.

Posting a record of 2 0 on day one, the Lockerby foursome kept right on rolling the next morning, remaining undefeated with a convincing win over Ecole secondaire catholique Elisabeth Bruyere from Mattawa.

were a little bit out of focus that game, said Leonard. ended up losing, but because we had no losses, it was good since this was a double knockout format. We just refocused our energy into the next game. that allowed the Sudbury reps to await the winner of an Eaket versus Elisabeth Bruyere matchup, with Lockerby eventually earning a trip to Fort Frances for OFSAA from March 20 to 24. They will be joined there by the familiar face of Kate Sherry, who helped lead the Widdifield Wildcats boys to a NOSSA banner of their own in Blind River.

Yesterday would also see the kickoff of the Ontario Winter Games schedules, with plenty of local representation in the mix. The U17 boys event features the Idylwylde Golf Country Club rink of Samuel Branconnier, Nathan Leonard, Patrik Labrosse and James McVittie, while their club mate quartet of Bella Croisier, Jamie Smith, Piper Croisier and Lauren Rajala is sure to challenge on the girls side of the draw.

The 2018 OWG also introduces the U21 mixed doubles curling competition for the very first time, with a couple of interesting local connections. Kira Brunton and Jacob Horgan have combined forces to enter a team that, on paper,
ugg customer service Snow days can't cool curlers
would seem to surely be a contender for gold.

Meanwhile, Horgan longtime junior teammate, Maxime Blais, from Smooth Rock Falls, has teamed with fellow Laurentian University student, Alyssa Denyer of Minden, to give it their best shot in a sporting endeavour that is only just beginning to gain a foothold in the curling community.

A pair of local rinks qualified mid February for the upcoming Travelers Curling Club Championship Provincials in Sault Ste. Marie (March 22 25), with both teams running the table in round robin play.

The Curl Sudbury crew of Janice Vettoretti, Jessica Orford, Jill Dutrisac and Deb Beitschat posted a 4 0 record in Coniston, downing, in succession, Karen Pigeau of Sturgeon Falls (8 2), Meri Bolander from Copper Cliff (7 5), Carole Paquette from Capreol (9 1) and Louise Logan of the Idylwylde (8 5).

It was a somewhat similar story on the men side as skip Jason Strelezki and his Copper Cliff contingent of Chris Gordon, Rob Shalla and Derek Crew emerged on Monday morning of Family Day weekend, boasting a flawless mark of 5 0.

While that string included victories over Serge Palin of North Bay (5 3), Jeff Currie of Coniston (8 4), Devon Parry from Curl Sudbury (7 5), Greg Blanchette of Capreol (7 1) and Patrick Chartier of the Idylwylde (6 3), it was the Strelezki v Parry encounter that ultimately decided this bonspiel.

Parry and company would finish the event at 4 1, their only defeat an extra end loss at the hands of the eventual tournament champs. Finally, the U18 boys and girls NOCA provincial field was recently rounded out as the second chance group gathered in Timmins for the East Qualifier.

In what certainly did not constitute a great surprise, the local entries of the Croisier squad currently competing at the Ontario Winter Games, as well as the Curl Sudbury collection of Jacob Horgan, Max Cull, Nicholas Bissonnette and Shane Robinson both made their way through, unscathed,
ugg customer service Snow days can't cool curlers
earning the right to go toe to toe with the previous regional winners beginning next Wednesday at the Horne Granite Curling Club in North Bay.

And we would be remiss if we were not to wish Tanner Horgan the best of luck and a truly enjoyable experience as he attends the 2018 Tim Hortons Brier starting today in Regina. The longtime junior curling phenom was picked up by the Brad Jacobs rink from Sault Ste. Marie to serve as an alternate for the former Olympic gold medal winning crew.

While he may or may not see game action in Saskatchewan probably more likely than not the latter the experience alone for a young man who one can easily see following in the accomplished footsteps of Jacobs in years to come is likely invaluable to his overall curling development.

ugg sale clearance uk Snow at the ski area means dollars in town

The weekend before the Martin Luther King Jr. (After this weekend, there is 12 new inches of natural snow on the mountain, making it even more inviting.)

The skier dollar involves a lot more than a lift pass. The families we met were staying in downtown hotels and had reservations at high end restaurants. They were spending on rentals, lessons and ski gear in town. Like the opera and Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, the ski area is an income magnet for all of us.

Santa Fe’s predominant currency is its visual aesthetics. I am for a truck stop. I am not for a glaringly bright, obnoxious chunk of ugly visible for miles in all directions. Santa Fe has done well with sign and building codes that preserve at least the semblance of its soul. But even those were not enough to prevent the urban smears along St. Michael’s Drive and most of Cerrillos Road. It takes decades for urban blight to be corrected, if ever. Let’s prevent it in advance by insisting on a truck stop design that augments rather than detracts from our city’s incredible beauty.

Nate Downey, as a candidate for City Council, District 2, provides excellent credentials in solving some of Santa Fe’s crucial problems: affordable housing, job growth and the drought conditions plaguing our community. His 25 plus years as a permaculture designer would be a great asset in the restructuring of Santa Fe University of Art and Design. For many years, Nate Downey has fought for the living wage and provided it for his employees. Downey, former chairman of the Permaculture Credit Union, has a sound knowledge in financial matters, keeping our money secure. I enthusiastically endorse Nate Downey for Santa Fe City Council, District 2.

I caught some of Gov. Susana Martinez’s State of the State address (“From governor, same old song,” Our View, Jan. 17), and was taken with her hypocrisy. She talked of supporting law enforcement and the tragedy of officers who fall in the line of duty. I remember all too well her December 2015 “pizza” party, when people complained of glass bottles being thrown from the balcony of the Eldorado Hotel room where the party took place. Then, after police responded, she used the power of her office to try and make them go away. For shame, Susana.

adirondack ugg Snoop Dogg takes us to church on gospel double CD

“I’m just a nobody trying to tell everybody about somebody who can save anybody,” he raps in one song. On another: “The devil will show up/But we’re going to keep on doing God’s work/Yes, sir/Rebuke the devil.”

Snoop doesn’t perform on every track, preferring to showcase a variety of outstanding performers in the genre, such as The Clark Sisters, John P. Kee and Kim Burrell.

Thanks to Mr. Dogg, non gospel folk will now be exposed to powerhouses like Tye Tribbett, whose infectious “You” makes hearts race, and K Ci, whose voice flutters like a butterfly on “No One Else.”

When Snoop does drop in,

his nasally, precise, laconic flow works in beautiful counterpoint to gospel stars such as Rance Allen (a terrifically funky “Blessing Me Again”), and B. Slade, who pops up all over the CDs and teams up with Snoop on the stunning, album ending “Words Are Few.”

Rising star October London, who sang the steamy “Kisses Down Below” and was last seen poolside with some bikini beauties knocking back expensive liquor on Snoop’s video for “Go On,” is a tad more conservative here with “In the Name of Jesus.” Soopafly offers a view of what a rap dance gospel song can sound like on “Praise Him.”

“Bible of Love” doesn’t just showcase talented gospel artists. It also shows off an elastic, big tent version of the musical genre that can include flavors of soul, blues and R Adding rap makes perfect sense.

ugg coat Snedeker and Wilt turn a friendship into a title

ugg shop bicester village Snedeker and Wilt turn a friendship into a title

If no one asks, Toby Wilt won offer any clarification.

way I going to describe it when my friends ask is that Brandt and I are co champions, and it will sound like it was the two of us, as opposed to sharing it with somebody else, he said.

The reality is that Wilt and Brandt Snedeker not only paired for the pro am title just over a week ago at the AT Pebble Beach National Pro Am, they shared it with pro Michael Letzig and his amateur partner. Each duo finished 31 under par two shots clear of all others for the four rounds of competition.

In any event, Wilt and Snedeker, the 68 year old banker and the 32 year old pro, were glad to share the spotlight because it only added to their shared history.

Theirs is a partnership that far exceeds a single tournament. It dates back more than a decade, to when Nashville native Snedeker graduated from Montgomery Bell Academy and accepted a scholarship to play at Vanderbilt University, and includes any number of casual rounds at Golf Club of Tennessee, of which Wilt is a founder.

In a way, Snedeker play at Pebble Beach, where he won for the fifth time on the PGA Tour and climbed to fourth in the world rankings, was nothing Wilt hadn seen. At the same time, it was like nothing he witnessed.

played with him there a couple times, which was under the gun, Wilt said. was much more like a Saturday afternoon at The Golf Club of Tennessee. To be with him and watch him play near perfect golf for four days, and be in the final pairing at a PGA tournament, was kind of a thrill of a lifetime. He was totally under control the entire time. He was very loose and relaxed the entire time and played almost flawless golf. was the first golfer to receive the Toby S. Wilt Athletic Scholarship, originally given to benefit the football program. In 1999, though, the benefactor met with then athletic director Todd Turner and raised the notion that his largesse might be of greater benefit to the golf program because of his connections within that game and his frustration with the football program lack of success at that time.

talked about who it ought to be, Wilt said. valued watching a couple things that Brandt had done at MBA when he was there. We decided that was the right guy. The coach recruited him and then we gave him this scholarship. Brandt and I became friends while he was in school, and the whole relationship just blossomed ever since. I tried to be a bit of a mentor to him on the business side, but he a smart guy so he doesn need a hell of a lot of help. Wilt came to Vanderbilt from Evanston, Ill., on a football scholarship in 1962 and left as a golfer. Well, sort of.

He had been a member of his high school team, so in the spring of 1966, following his final football season, he tried out for and made Vanderbilt golf team. He was good enough that he was in the lineup that season for the Southeastern Conference championships.

was threatening to be last, but I gutted it out the last nine holes and finished third to last in the SEC, he said.

These days, he carries a 7 handicap.

He played well enough at Pebble Beach that he and Snedeker were in position to claim the pro am trophy in their third run at it. They made the cut but did not really contend in 2009 and missed the cut in a tiebreaker two years later.

In the final round this year, each three putted the ninth hole and later missed birdie putts on No. 18, either one of which would have given them the crown outright. As it is, their names still will go on the wall between the practice green and first tee at the famed course, and Wilt has cleared room in his trophy case for the keepsake, which has not yet been shipped to him.

they know you have a relationship or have had a long term relationship they try to accommodate that to a degree, Wilt said of the pairing process. knew that Brandt and I had a relationship. first three days they were paired with professional Luke List, another Vanderbilt graduate who succeeded Snedeker as the Wilt Scholarship recipient. The fourth member of the group was amateur Heidi Ueberroth daughter of Peter Ueberroth, a high ranking executive in the NBA league office and another Vanderbilt graduate.

we have four Vanderbilt graduates, and then my son, Fleming, caddied for me, and he a Vanderbilt graduate also, Wilt said. the amateurs decked ourselves out in Vanderbilt clothes and we had a blast. fun continued through the final round when Snedeker maintained the momentum he built when he claimed the FedEx Cup, the PGA Tour version of a playoff, last fall and carried into this season, when he finished in the top three in three of his first four starts.

nobody playing any better in the world than he is right now, Wilt said. not inappropriately ranked at fourth I think he very appropriately ranked at fourth. I think his goals are to at some time be the top man in the world, and I think he got a darn good shot to do that. as a person, has never thought that he become any more special than he was when he was a senior in high school. I think that a great tribute to him. With all the success, he never felt that he really special. is why he never has given Wilt a reason to doubt he made the right decision when he moved his scholarship to the golf program.

have a great relationship with Brandt, obviously, a good one with Luke over the years, and the young man Adam Hoffman, who was on the scholarship for the last five years, is also a good friend. So I made three great friends out of a contribution, which a lot of times all you get back is kind of a smile.
